A crowd of us went to the Ely Steak House for dinner while staying at a local resort. There were a dozen rowdy guys in the crowd. We had great meals and service there. Many of us returned on separate occasions.

It was ok. My steak was very thin and chewy which always lets me down for the price. I was looking forward to something more. The fish was good... maybe that is their specialty? The atmosphere was very fun and the server was super nice too. Good environment, but if you are a foodie... may want to keep on trucking.

They prepare your steak very well. The flavor is excellent. Service was good and the pricing is fair. It's really the only place in Ely for a good steak dinner that won't break the bank. This was my third time dinning there and I will certainly return when in Ely.

The Ely Steakhouse serves one of the best prime rib dinners I have ever had. The prime rib was cooked to perfection and the size of the meal was too much for one sitting. Although it was on the Harvest Moon weekend, we still managed to get a setting without a very lengthy wait. The staff was very courteous and... More

One of the best I have had and to find a delicious veggie burger was like discovering a food gold mine Hubby ordered steak and escargots- yummylicious, he exclaimed! Our server was wonderful and the food and ambience: super-duper! Whenever we visit Ely again,... More

Medium rare is what I ordered and that's what I got. The service was great, The salad was fresh, the potato was to big, but who would... More

Should have known when we walked in, first thing happened we went to the desk and they totally ignored my wife and took the party that came in behind us. When I called them on it they found us a table. We were seated and waited 15 min while other couples that were seated after we were had their drink... More

This restaurant is so comfortable and relaxed. Fantastic staff. Super friendly and helpful. We had 4 persons in our party. We all had the Octoberfest special. Was better than schnitzel we had in Germany. We all enjoyed it. Reasonable prices.

We had a fine ribeye (cooked to medium rare--just as we'd ordered) and the very hard-to-find "broasted chicken"--which was done expertly. We were a tad disappointed in the au gratin potatoes, but everything else was excellent. The "by the glass" assortment of wines was also very good, and the bartender made a fine Martini.
